Okay, it’s Thursday! 

Where’s the sunshine my husband promised (here)? That was two days ago and I’ve been waiting, not so patiently, for those bright, warm rays of sunshine.

It’s not all bad. I stuck my head out the door a little while ago and was greeted with the pleasing smell that lingers after a spring rain. And I couldn’t help but notice how green everything looks. That’s very nice. But the temperature is only 59°. And it’s still dreary. I’m ordering up a nice sunny day in the 70’s; a day when I don’t have to turn on all the lights in the house.

In a perfect world, we’d be able to do that: order our weather according to what we were doing on any given day. But then, everyone wouldn’t want the same thing and it would be too confusing.

I suppose that’s the reason we have no control over these matters. We’re only human. Unfortunately, our brains don’t function at even a fraction of what they’re capable of... and so, there are many things we aren't given the power to control.

And that’s very hard on us control freaks!

A sunny day makes me feel better. And music. I think we must be alike. I like your posts too.

Thursday was one of the happiest days of my life. Our daughter had surgery for uterine cancer. It was to be a six or seven hour surgery... and, yes, it rained on me while I was walking into the hospital from the parking lot.
The surgery was only four hours, the doctor said the prognosis was good (just have to wait for the pathology report on Monday).
Maybe it rained, maybe there was no sunshine, but I saw a rain bow on Thursday.
I guess weather is a state of mind, maybe not so much geography.

You are so right MJ! And you make me ashamed of myself for grumbling about the weather when there are so many much more important things to be concerned about!
I am very thankful that the prognosis is good for your daughter, and I will pray that the Lord wraps His loving arms around her and brings her back to good health. You will be in my prayers, too. God bless you!
